Comprehensive eye exams by a Doctor of Optometry are an important part of caring for your eyes and vision.
Our doctors will test your visual acuity and perform a refraction test to generate a prescription if needed. An ocular health evaluation will include an eye pressure test for glaucoma, binocular and peripheral vision assessment, and a retinal (back of the eye) evaluation on all patients.
OCT (Optical Coherence Tomography) The OCT is an excellent way to visualize the different layers of the retina and optic nerve in a living eye.
Refraction- A refraction test is one portion of a standard eye exam—the part where the eye doctor determines what if any, prescription (or changes to your current prescription) are needed
Dilation – dilating in reference to your eyes is the process by which the pupils (black center portion of your eye) are enlarged. Your pupils naturally enlarge and constrict throughout the day without you even noticing.
Glaucoma- (Intraocular pressure test) Glaucoma tests can determine whether the optic nerve is damaged, which may cause vision problems.
Safeguarding Sight from Every Angle:
Dilation for Detailed Eye Care
When you are exposed to bright light your pupils constrict (get smaller) in order to prevent too much light entering and causing damage to the very back of your eye, the retina. When you enter a dark room your pupils enlarge (get bigger) to allow more light to enter your eye which gives you better vision in dim lighting. So why does your optometrist need your pupils dilated during your exam?
When your pupils are dilated they give your optometrist a much better view of the back of your eye, called the retina, along with your optic nerve. Examining the retina and optic nerve is very important for diagnosing, preventing, and treating eye conditions such as glaucoma and macular degeneration; both of which could lead to vision loss if left untreated. When your pupils are not dilated the optometrist can still view the back of your eye, but his or her view is much more limited (see diagram below) and prevents them from thoroughly seeing your entire retina.
